Man angry about overbooked flight strips naked in airport

[Ed. – Stress coping mechanism?]

A man reportedly stripped naked in the Charlotte Douglas International Airport Wednesday morning after he became angry about a flight being overbooked. Police say he will not be facing charges.

According to witnesses, the man was attempting to get on board a US Airways flight to Jamaica early Wednesday morning.

“I seen some people running and I was wondering what they was running from and people were standing there snickering, so I walked over and [an airport employee] told me the man was angry over the Jamaican flight,” Sherry Ketchie told WBTV.

Ketchie says the man sounded very angry and was yelling.

“He had his clothes on, at that point, and then he started standing there with his arms crossed and hollering at the lady at the desk,” she told WBTV. “He stood there for a moment and then started taking off his clothes. I ain’t never seen nothing [like that] in my life.”

She says the man didn’t say anything as he was taking his clothes off.

“More people started getting back because that’s when security started surrounding him, waiting for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to come in,” she said.
